Woman caught dealing pen-guns to criminals

A WOMAN has been arrested over her alleged involvement in a major pen-gun supply syndicate in New South Wales.

Earlier this year, detectives from the Firearms and Organised Crime Squad formed Strike Force Expedient to investigate a Sydney-based syndicate allegedly involved in the manufacture and supply of pen-guns.

Yesterday, a 25-year-old West Hoxton woman was arrested and charged with supplying the prohibited firearm to an unauthorised person.


She’s been granted conditional bail to appear before Liverpool Local Court on October 22.

It comes after police raided a vehicle in a car park at Carnes Hill on Wednesday September 17 where they arrested two men and seized three pen-guns and three knives.

One of the men – a 27-year-old from West Hoxton – was charged with numerous offences relating to the manufacture and supply of unregistered and prohibited firearms and is currently before the courts.

The other man, a 24-year-old, was released without charge.

Over the course of their inquiries to date, detectives have seized 15 pen-guns.

The investigation into the pen-gun supply syndicate by Strike Force Expedient continues.
